BLM SHOOTS ITSELF IN THE FOOT AGAIN
For a movement to gain traction, its platforms and principles need to be rooted in constitutional history and not based on agendas not intended by our Founding Fathers.
And just when you thought liberal media might be onto something, they surprise themselves in frustration at their own insistence and effort.
Take the case of the interview done by FOX News’ Anchor Martha MacCallum with Hawk Newsome, the chairperson of the Black Lives Matter Movement of Greater New York (City). Every attempt by MacCallum to question Newsome’s motives ended up stonewalled in rhetoric that was totally self-serving and rooted in liberalism.
First, Newsome attacked Rudy Giuliani’s portrayal of BLM as a “domestic terrorist organization”. After his rant, MacCallum played a clip of Chicago BLM organizer Ariel Atkins, which condoned looting as “reparations”. Atkins’ comments made Facebook, of course: “I don’t care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike because that makes sure that person eats. That makes sure that person has clothes. That’s reparations. That is reparations.”
When asked if Newsome agreed with Atkins’s statement, Newsome dodged the question by ranting on white supremacy as a form of oppression … “white supremacy will have you criticizing the oppressed and worshipping the oppressors. Now, if you want to talk to me about reparations, nothing falls short of a solution other than people cutting a check. And we’re not talking about going in everyday Americans’ pockets, we are talking about banks who benefitted from slavery.”
No matter how many times MacCallum tried to interrupt Newsome with getting him to stay on point and answer the question about Atkins’ comments, Newsome continued to evade the question by bringing up the police shooting of Breonna Taylor. Frustrated, MacCallum ended the interview when Newsome again avoided her question with another question of his own.
“You are having a circular conversation”, MacCallum stated as Newsome continued babbling. “You don’t want to answer questions about looting and stealing and breaking windows so, hopefully, we can have another conversation … ” (hat tip to the Daily Caller) Frankly, this author tuned Newsome out when he said the banks should just cut a check because they benefitted from slavery. These people appear to have a one-track mind. To even state the term “white supremacy”, one has to understand that the term in of itself is racist. But it’s okay for liberals to call out anyone who even dares to argue this point racist. This is the Antifa modus operandi.
In some Arab States, if you are caught shoplifting, they cut off your hands. BLM folk should be glad they don’t live in the Arab States. The author wonders how many times Martin Luther King, Jr. has turned over in his grave in wonder of today’s current events?
Every time we turn a new page in history, the BLM Movement teaches us about the way many people think, not just black people. There are entitled “white” people too. This is why welfare states are draining this country of the opportunity to grow. Businesses move to and open their doors where the labor pools support the working stiffs.
Any state which condones the socialist welfare system will fail because its ideological processes are not rooted in anything God-like as to principle. To have BLM spokespeople out there saying it’s okay to steal a Gucci purse out of a broken store window because people gotta eat … excuse me? How do you “eat” a Gucci purse?
Oh wait! You have to sell the stolen Gucci purse (to someone who pays you money) so you can buy drugs and food. The welfare state loves to support people’s drug and alcohol habits. The author knows this from personal experiences. Most people this author is aware of that are on some form of government dole spend their stipend unwisely. The BLM Movement made its first mistakes when whoever decided the two people discussed in this article should be “leaders” or “organizers” put them in the spotlight. There is nothing rational about the comments made by these two people. There are ordinances on the books in every city and state that prohibit destruction of property and theft of property, receiving stolen goods and selling stolen goods. What it appears is that these folks simply want to “take” whatever suits them (meaning property not belonging to them) at the time it suits them and sell it at 100% profit so they can simply “exist” until the money runs out and then “take” again.
Blue State ideologies support this behavior.
There is nothing God-like about this attitude at all. Most of us work for a living. The author doesn’t care what color your skin is … you have the opportunity (like every other hard working American out there) to work smart and take legitimate advantage of every opportunity that is afforded to you. If you have to “take” shortcuts just to survive, then you have to either be punished (for which the system has a set of laws for that purpose) or suffer at the hands of an armed homeowner or shopkeeper.
IN SEATTLE, WHITE PEOPLE LIVING IN BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS ARE CHASTISED BY BLM
“Give us your houses and open your wallets!” This is the kind of garbage being spewed by protesters in Seattle as they marched through mostly black neighborhoods, accusing white people of buying up all of the property and furthering the cause of white gentrification and white supremacy. You have to wonder what turnip truck these protesters fell off of. It’s apparent they didn’t pay attention to history in grade school. Oh wait! What kids are taught in our liberal education systems is being taught by teachers who got a liberal education in college and are liberally paying principal and interest on student loans for the rest of their lives. Hmmm. Some things just aren’t right here, are they? This sounds like the same “circular conversation” propounded by Newsome and Atkins.
SO ARE WE TO ASSUME THAT PROTESTERS PROMOTING THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR SHOULD BE REWARDED?
The author found this 14″ x 10″ sign was available for purchase at Harbor Freight for just $4.99!
Imagine that? Why is Harbor Freight selling signs like this?
This is why there is an uptick in gun and ammo sales across America. With this kind of “entitlement attitude”, things can only get worse if our government doesn’t do something to uphold the law. This author believes that what BLM is doing is not just protesting police brutality, but rather promoting racism, their right to be black, their right to be free of consequence for their illegal actions, their right to loot, steal and vandalize, their right to shoot cops … and their right to shoot you … “whitey” … just ask the parents of the 5-year-old white boy that was shot in the head point by a black next door neighbor in North Carolina. Tweaking on Fentanyl or not, no one has the right to take another’s life unless it’s in self defense. That goes for the white cop that kneeled on George Floyd’s neck while he was tweaking on Fentanyl.
And the BLM made Floyd their poster child. I guess it’s okay to burn down buildings, put people out of work, beat up shopkeepers and pop a cop, so long as you made your point, eh?
So now … this author surmises that if the BLM Movement wants to keep this tirade in the forefront, the consequences will end up falling on the shoulders of the citizens who choose to protect themselves by lethal force in defending their life, liberty and property. And the more of a foothold the liberals get in America (just look at all of the Blue State-Blue City Majors that have condoned all of this illicit behavior) … well, you get the picture. This is not making America great. This country is going to hell in a hand basket. Those who are sane are the only ones who can save its future.
Again, history repeats itself … and those who are ignorant of it are condemned to repeat it. -Georg Santayana
